GBG MMA’s Anton Turkalj (0-0) will make his pro debut against Marius Pislariu (0-1) at RXF 33 in Bucharest on the 10th of December.  “Not only will I make my pro debut, but this will also mark the start of a new era” says the amateur Swedish National team fighter to MMA Viking.

The light heavyweight fighter has had a long and successful amateur career, including wins at MMA Galla and Trophy MMA.  He also medaled at the 2017 and 2018 IMMAF European Championships, plus the 2017 World Championships.  He even captured gold at the 2017 IMMAF Euro championships.

Pislariu is out of REI fight gym and has competed at heavyweight.  He lost his pro debut.
